Open Link to Instagram Native

To open a Facebook Native profile, I can use:

NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:@"fb://profile/<id>"];
[[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:url];

Is there any way to do the same thing for an Instagram profile?


Following Snippet will open instagram app on your device with userName.

Objective C

NSURL *instagramURL = [NSURL URLWithString:@"instagram://user?username=USERNAME"];
if ([[UIApplication sharedApplication] canOpenURL:instagramURL]) {
    [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:instagramURL];


var instagramURL: NSURL = NSURL(string: "instagram://user?username=USERNAME")
if UIApplication.sharedApplication().canOpenURL(instagramURL) {

Swift 3.0

let instagramURL:URL = URL(string: "instagram://user?username=USERNAME")!
if UIApplication.shared.canOpenURL(instagramURL) {, options:[:], completionHandler: { (Bool) in
        print("Completion block")
